Southeast ATTC x AABH-COE: Pursuing Racial Equity in Mental Health Care: Laying the Foundation for Organizational Readiness





Often, motivated by sentinel events, organizations move directly to implementing individual equity initiatives, without first grounding the work in the organizational readiness and cultural change that is necessary to support the longevity of such initiatives.  Each learner will leave this hands-on seminar with an understanding of concepts, concrete tools, processes, and strategies that will enable them to contribute to cultural change management and the development of sustainable initiatives to address race and identity inequity and health disparities in their workplace.



1. Understand existing data that reflect workforce inequity and health disparities in black communities
2. Utilize data to identify inequity and resultant opportunities for improvement
3. Utilize a standardized tool to raise organizational awareness of staff competencies and organizational operations
4. Describe the ADKAR model of organizational change
5. Apply data analysis, organizational awareness assessment results, and the ADKAR model to the development of an organizational action plan towards equity
